These zodiac sake cups increase one by one each year. Produced using 100% tin based on skills developed from the processing techniques of "casting", a traditional industry of Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. This sake cup which has traditional Kanazawa gold leaf adorning its inner side adds a luxurious touch to a drinking occasion. Tin has good conductivity so, if you put this cup in the fridge for just 1-2 minutes, it will chill the drink inside, which makes it perfect for cold sake. You can also deliciously enjoy lukewarm sake.The inner side has a simple texture adorned with gold leaf and, if you turn it upside down, there is a realistic looking zodiac animal on the bottom. Year by year, the types available increase. As well as customers who get these sake cups for their own zodiac year or the year of family members, there are also those who have enjoyed collecting all types of these over 12 years.
